Lady Day

eva franco modcloth

I don't wear this dress nearly enough.  It's one of my favorite colors in the whole world, and I watched it for months on the ModCloth site before it finally dropped down to a price I could afford.  So I'm not sure why it sits waiting in my closet for so long between outings.  I had planned on wearing this dress when Audra McDonald came to sing with the orchestra I work for (I thought this ensemble would be an appropriate nod to Billie Holiday).  I took these photos and had some downtime before work, so I put on sweatpants in between.  I went to put the dress back on... and the zipper suddenly wouldn't zip, no matter how hard I tried!  So it's going to be another long while before I wear this dress again -- this time, because I'll have to get the zipper replaced!  I wore a different dress to work, and though I stood in the very back row, hers is a performance I won't soon forget.  What an incredible artist and lady.

I hope you all had a nice Valentine's weekend!  I had shows on Saturday and Sunday, and held my own Friends marathon and ate my feelings in my spare time.  ;)  It totally wasn't as pathetic as I make it out to be.  Honestly, I would much rather be single on holidays like this than be with someone who is wrong for me or in a relationship that doesn't add to my happiness!  Being alone has made me value a lot of things about myself, and I'm very purposefully not dating for the foreseeable future.  I need to be happy on my own before I get into anything with anyone again, and I'm actually really grateful for this "me" time.

  1. That is such a terrifically pretty shade of mint green! It looks all extra lovely against the snowy white backdrop. Gorgeous outfit and snaps, dear gal!

  2. Too bad about the zipper- it is such a unique color and a pretty color on you!

  3. Mint dresses are the best. :D It's horrible when it gets ruined and not worn by a bad zipper!

  4. Pretty dress! Mint is one of my favourite colours, and I definitely need more of it in my wardrobe this Spring! xx

  5. Freakin' zippers! It's one of my pet peeves - when dresses/skirts come with a cheap zipper. Can't the clothing industry figure it out already and stop using cheap zippers? It drives me mad when I put on a dress after only a wash or two and the zipper acts up! NOT a good way to start the day!

    In a Nutshell...

  6. The first thing I thought was that you looked like a modern day cinderella! So gorgeous!

  7. Eva Franco: Beautiful dresses, empty bank account! haha. I love this dress on you so much and I'm so jealous you got to perform with/watch Audra McDonald! <3

  8. Hey a Friends marathon is completely acceptable! Whatever makes you happy! Valentine's Day can be about loving yourself too, after all.
    I think this dress is gorgeous on you. I have pieces I love that don't make it out of my closet as much as I originally thought they would too. I think that happens a lot more often when you have a ridiculous amount of clothes. (Which is definitely my problem.)
